A sock for all of the Downton Abbey fans out there!

Mrs. Hughes: “In many ways I wanted to accept. But I’m not that farm girl anymore. I was flattered, of course, but…I’ve changed Mr. Carson.”
Mr. Carson: “Life’s altered you as it’s altered me. And what would be the point of living if we didn’t let life change us?” ….Mrs. Hughes and Mr. Carson on Mrs. Hughes refusing the second proposal of Mr. Barns.

I’d like to think our beloved Mrs. Hughes might wear these socks in her busy day at Downton Abbey.

Knit from cuff to toe with a cable, seed and twisted stitch they are fun to knit and the result is a sock with understated elegance, just like Mrs. Hughes!

UPDATE: We are so fortunate that virsuinchen has been generous enough to chart the pattern for the leg! This will make Mrs. Hughes and many of you very, very happy! Kudos to her!
